Validator errors out on Shockwave <embed>

I have a web page that uses Shockwave. When I validate the page,  
everything checks out until I get to the element embed, which is required  
by Shockwave. At that point, the entire line checks out as invalid. Is  
this normal? How should this be handled to pass?

Here is an example:

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"  
codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0"  
width="750" height="550" id="Index1a" align="middle">

<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />

<param name="movie" value="Index1a.swf" />

<param name="quality" value="high" />

<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

<param name="bgcolor" value="#fcfcf5" />

<!-- THE NEXT LINE FAILS VALIDATION -->

<embed src="Index1a.swf" quality="high" wmode="transparent"  
bgcolor="#fcfcf5" width="750" height="550" name="Index1a" align="middle"  
allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"  
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

</object>

Thank you for taking the time to look at this.
